We, at Mimi Berlin, are speechless after seeing the images of the Miu Miu Club show….But we ARE able to utter one word though: W O W
“July 4, 2015, in celebration of the unveiling of the 2016 Croisière (cruise/resort) collection and the introduction of the first house fragrance, Miu Miu opened the Miu Miu Club, a one-night-only intervention in the 1937 Palais d’Iena in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Inspired by the rich tradition and dark evocation of Parisian nightlife, the Miu Miu Club featured a cocktail gathering, exclusive dinner, fashion show, musical performances, and a late night party. In addition the Club included a special powder room dedicated to experiencing the first Miu Miu fragrance.” (read/see more miumiu.com) Continue reading →
The Somebody App is a messaging service by Miranda July, It’s created with the support of Miu Miu, and launched August 28, 2014. Send your friend a message…a stranger will deliver it verbally! Or you can deliver someone else’s message! Somebody works when lots of people in the same area download it so invite your friends! Or bring a friend to one of our official hotspots (or… make your own Somebody hotspot!)
Somebody movie, by Miranda July. Notice the clothing it’s all Miu Miu for Fall 2014. (somebody – Miu Miu- women’s tales #8)
“Test my soil. Deeper.” Have you ever found it impossible to say something, face to face, to someone you know, someone you love? The words just won’t come out? A new messaging service, SOMEBODY, by Miranda July could help. It’s the star of her film for Miu Miu Womens’ Tales, the eighth commission in the acclaimed short-film series by women directors who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century. Jessica wants to tell Caleb she can’t be his girlfriend anymore. She opens up SOMEBODY, types in the heartbreaking message, and selects Paul from a list. Paul is in the park. Paul’s phone dings. He eyes Caleb having a picnic. Paul delivers the bad news—as Jessica. Eyes bawling. Arms flapping. Caleb is, devastated. The SOMEBODY app then totally saves Yolanda and Blanca’s friendship, makes Jeffy’s marriage proposal to lonely Victoria, and initiates a curious ménage-a-trois between two prison workers and a parched potted plant named Anthony. This latest addition to Womens’ Tales showcases Miranda July’s unique ability to capture the strange tenderness of contemporary relationships. Somebody takes our endless hunger for communication, technology, avatars and outsourcing, and blends it into what seems to be a surreal near-future — but it’s not. It’s right now. In close collaboration with Miu Miu, July worked with a team of developers to create this radical and complex app; when the movie ends we’re invited to visit somebodyapp.com to send or deliver our first message.
